Bat­tle­field 5 has en­tered the Pa­cific The­ater of World War 2, and if the ex­cite­ment of re­turn­ing to clas­sic maps like Wake Is­land is enough to fi­nally get you into BF5, a new edition of the game can get you caught up quick. The fifth chap­ter of Bat­tle­field 5 is ti­tled War in the Pa­cific, and it fo­cuses en­tirely on bat­tles be­tween the U.S. Armed Forces and the Im­pe­rial Ja­panese Army, nei­ther of which were pre­vi­ously rep­re­sented in the game.

The new chap­ter ar­rives with two maps: Iwo Jima and Pa­cific Storm, where “the weather is as treach­er­ous as your foes” (try putting that on a tourism brochure). The return of Wake Is­land will come in De­cem­ber, and EA says it will re­tain the dis­tinct horse­shoe-shaped lay­out of the orig­i­nal.

On top of the maps, a bun­dle of new weapons and ve­hi­cles have been added to the game for each fac­tion to use, and even more will be up for un­lock­ing as the lat­est Tides of War season pro­gresses.
